The Canadian Government has devised a
means by which you can "tryout” a farm for
a year or two before investing, and at the
same time increase your capital for the day
when you are ready to. buy a fapn of your
own. Many Canadian land owners are will*
ing to rent a portion of their holdings; others |
are already retiring and will rent on easy
terms, in some cases giving an option of pur
chase. If you have a farm outfit, or the
means of buying it, even if your other capi
tal is email, this is your chance to try out the
country for yourself. Seeing is believing.
See for yourself. A year or two on a rented
farm may be the road to success. If you have
present holdings which you cannot sell to
advantage, hold them another year or two.

j Progress Toward Church Union j
From The Kansas City Star.
The long process of reuniting a church body, separated over an Issue
that ceased to exist more than half a century ago, Is illustrated in negotia
tions now being conducted by the two main branches of Methodism in the
United States. A few days ago there met in Cincinnati a joint commission
on unification of the two divisions for the purpose of carrying forward the
movement which assumed fairly definite form about a decade ago.
The commission was unable to reach an agreement, but its members
were able to report progress. From their number a committee was selected
to meet In St. Louis the last of March. The report of this committee will be
submitted for approval of the joint commission; and should the outcome be a
recommendation of reunion, then the matter will go before the general con
ferences of the Methodist Episcopal church anjl the Methodist Episcopal
church. South. As the conference of the former does not assemble till next
year and of the latter till 1928, tt la expected that In the event of mutual rati
fication of a reunion plan It will be 1927 before Methodism In America again
. is undier one governing body.
The situation is Interesting and doubtless requires the deliberation that
hae marked the reunion efforts. It was nearly 80 years ago, or in 1844, when
the ranks of the Methodists of this country" were severed over the ques
tion of slavery. The division had to do with fundamental policies of th*
church in dealing with the troublesome question and apparently was in
evitable. And despite the years that have elapsed since the close of the
Civil war, a linking up of the Methodists has been approached gratlually. A
troublesome factor has been the greater numerical strength of the northern
branch of the church; but the southern division, through appointment a
year ago of a commission to enter negotiations for union, matched the
action of the larger unit In 1920.
It Is significant, however, that the Methodists appear much nearer re
union than other church bodies, particularly the Baptists, who separated
over the same question. The northern and southern branches of the Baptists
began their separate existence in 1845, and there has not been since that time
any definite movement looking to unification of sections. It is notable that
In the case of the Baptists there exist more vital differences of church doc
trine and policy than have prevailed among Methodists; and it Is probable
that reunion at present Is out of the question.
But the general trend among religious bodies, evidenced by formation of
the federal council of churches, by fhe joining of two branches of the Presby
terian several years ago and by the expressed willingness of the United
Brethren to come in with the Methodists, is toward a union of forces. It Is
apparent that the churches are realizing the effectiveness of a united front In
dealing with the problems, both religious aqd social, that have arisen In re
ONE KIND OF PRAYER.
THAT was a curious prayer which
the chaplain of the Colorado
House of Representatives offered
up at the opening of the present ses
sion of that body. Rev. Mr. Rader
was not content with beseeching the
Deity for guidance ant* help in be
half of the legislators; he needs
must go in for some acrid denuncia
tion, thus usurping the place which
mortals are adjured to keep for the'
Supreme Judge of all. Said he:
“Our courts are corrupt. God has
been expelled from our churches,
our pulpits are filled with essayists,
our boys and girls are going to the
dogs, our laboring men are going to
work with empty pails, whilh our
farmers starve and the middlemen
wax fat on exorbitant profits.”
This was Indeed a bold experi
ment. The chaplain waa doing
nothing less than trying to sway God
with some of the current political
hokum. This sort of whangdoodle
when directed toward certain ele
ments In the electorate seems to
have an almost magic quality In
luring votes, but one doubts its effi
cacy with an omniscient God. There
are times and places tor all things.
The Rader outpouring illustrates a
falling to which some clergymen
seem prone. That tailing is to pray
to the congregation «r assemblage
rather than to God, to design the
prayer so as to impress the mortal
listeners rather than to evoke God’s
blessing. In the present instance
Rev. Mr. Rader failed miserably as
far as impressing the mortals went,
for the Colorado House promptly
censured him for his eloquence.
However if the chaplain stirred the
legislators to worry over certain evil
tendencies by his outburst he may
Cost Millions to Elect Shipstead.
From the Farm Journal.
Henrik Shipstead, of Minesota, whom
farm-labor votes elected to the Senate
In November against the present In
cumbent, Frank B. Kellogg, republican,
says It cost “millions more” to win hie
victory than It cost Truman H. New
berry In Michigan In 1918. Called upon
to explain so astounding a statement,
Mr. Shipstead is reported to have ex
pressed himself In this wise: “The mil
lion that it cost to elect me are the mil
lions the farmers of Minnesota and tho
northwest have lost In recent times
through Inability, because of high trans
portation rates and other causes, to
market their produce. Compared to the
number of dollars that New berry spent,
the dollars the American farmers have
lost pile up a fabulous total. It cost
blood and tears to elect me. too—the
blood of men and women who have com
mitted suicide because of disastrous con
ditions In the farming country, and the
tears that have been shed over the
plight of the farm folk In recent times.”
